Pros: I've installed these on customer machines as well as my own, and have had zero issues. Strong connections. Drivers work great with current versions of windows.
Overall Review: Drivers must be installed to work. They can be downloaded at Rosewill's website if you don't have a CD drive to take the disc it comes with.
Pros: Wonderful card. Destroys any game I've thrown at it so far. Perfect card for 1440p gaming. Card is QUIET. The triple fans really keep the noise down while keeping it cool.
Cons: Driver issues can be a problem for some. Not a fault of the card, but expect to keep an eye on those AMD drivers.
Overall Review: I came from an nvidia 10 series card. I didn't mess around and just did a clean reinstall of windows to clear it out for the new hardware. (I was due for a reinstall anyways.) If you don't want to reinstall your OS, just make sure you do a PROPER uninstallation of your nvidia drivers if you are switching sides.
Pros: No issues with this kit. XMP profile easily achieved rated clock speeds. Never had a problem with Team kits, and this is no exception.
Overall Review: Paired with an AsRcock B450M-HDV R4.0 mobo and a Ryzen 3 2200G.
Pros: Cable Management was great even though it's a closed case.
Overall build quality was phenomenal for the money spent.
Nice aesthetic look. Simple and clean.
Comes with one 120 mm exhaust fan.
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: If you don't care about a window and are using a Mirco ATX mobo, this case is for you.
Pros: Worked well. Plenty of accessory cables if needed.
Overall Review: Another good PSU from EVGA. No issues installing into new build.
Pros: Worked well paired with a Ryzen 2200G. Mobo used was an MSI PRO B450M PRO-VDH and had no problem getting to rated speeds.
Overall Review: Good ram for a budget RRyzen build
Pros: Good value case that will fit a nice budget build.
Lightweight, comes with a fan and sorta has a 5.25 bay.
Cons: Build quality isn't the greatest. If the HHD bay it taken out, the motherboard tray wobbles a bit. Sheet metal is pretty thin. The clip on the PSU fan filter was broken off at the time of receiving it.
I also had a problem getting a CD drive to fit properly. Couldn't get the CD drive to sit flush with the front panel. if it was pushed any further back, it would make contact with the ram and a couple of capacitors on the motherboard. Now, this may be that my particular motherboard just didnt jive well with the case. so i wont cry too much about it.
Overall Review: I've no idea if a different mobo might work a little better with a CD drive. The board i used was an MSI PRO B450M PRO-VDH.
Cable management slots weren't even wide enough to fit the mobo power connector. But with a solid panel, i suppose cable management can slack a little.
Pros: Great cable management, 5.25 drive bays, acrylic side window (great if you're worried about the panel breaking in shipping.) Comes with two fans with white LED's. Sturdy case. Doesnt feel cheap.
Cons: Bottom fan placement could have been a little more thought out in regards to the HDD bay. Not knocking an egg for it though. (see more below)
Overall Review: It seemed to me that no matter how I moved things around, I could not install a bottom fan with the HDD drive bay installed. There were just millimeters of interference that would prevent having both installed. Better hole placement for the fan screws probably could have prevented this. I'm glad I had a spare 5.25 bay HDD cradle laying around to be able to install a HDD in a different location.
Pros: Works well with ryzen even though it says it's made to work with Intel.
Cons: No cons
Overall Review: Make sure you "overclock" it to its rated speed in the bios as with any ram on ryzen.
Pros: Full modular! Probably the lowest priced full modular on the market.
Overall Review: Only been running it a few weeks, but I am satisfied with the end result of my budget build this went into.
Pros: Everything you need for a budget build. Price point is great.
Cons: Only one system fan plug in. Had to buy a fan controller to control more than one fan.
Overall Review: Overall great board. Bios is simple to use.
Pros: Good price, durable, enough room for everything you need, great fan placement options.
Cons: Cable management is something to be desired. There are numerous open sections next to the motherboard that allow cables to poke through. Maybe I'm just bad at cable management so I won't knock an egg for it.
Overall Review: Great case. Has a durable acrylic side panel that can be positioned any which way with the case pwr buttons. First matx build for me, and would buy again.
Pros: No dead pixels
Thought curved monitors were a gimmick, but owning one has swayed me.
Cons: Base is huge and not ideal for a small desk. Wont knock an egg for it though.
Overall Review: Ensure you have room for the large base.
Pros: good, cheap mouse. serves it's purpose well.
Pros: Good value if it doesn't get damaged during shipment.
Cons: the shipment of this unit was sketchy. received it pretty banged up and the unit wouldn't power on. upon further inspection, I found out that the motherboard was severely damaged during shipment and needed replacement.
Overall Review: the company who refurbishes these was very helpful in sending a replacement mobo. threw the new one in and now everything works perfectly.
